Bouffay quarter

Middle Ages

For many years the town played the Middle Ages card and had its heart at Place Bouffay.

Description

As the years went on the centre out grew the area and the town had to rethink its position. Many monuments from this time are still visible in the modern day town.

Now mostly pedestrianised it still feels like the soul of the town. The names of the narrow lanes and streets bring back the time when the whole town was here. Depending on which way you go, you could pass in front of a timber-framed house or see a Renaissance dated chimney still hanging on. It’s a great area to meet up, go out, go shopping or enjoy the hustle and bustle of the crowds..
